I Need a New Gym (rant)6202

skullay private msg quote post Address this user
So a few weeks ago at my gym, I'm in there doing deadlifts and one of the managers comes up to me and says "Hey, you can't let the weight slam on the floor like that." The gym is on the 2nd floor and apparently dropping the weights can knock out the lights in the fixtures of the businesses on the first floor. Ok, fine, whatever...

Yesterday, I walk in and there are these signs posted everywhere saying "No Cut-Off Shirts Allowed" with a picture of a guy in a cutoff shirt.

WTF!??! What kind of place are they running? You go to their website and see this plastered on it.




How is it ok for girls to walk around wearing that, but there's a problem with my sleeves being cutoff?!? They have effectively gotten rid of half of my gym attire.

Slamming weights is one thing, I get it, I should pick weights that I can control, but no cutoffs?? They really must not want any real lifters in there...

I'd make a fuss about equality between the genders and you should remind them what GYMNASIUM translates to...

"School for naked exercise for Men"

Less sleeves, more naked. You are doing your job man.

My membership ends at the end of November. I was thinking of going somewhere else then, but none of the gyms in the area have DBs that go past 110 lbs.

I'm just going to have to rock my SS Y-Back tank everyday. Since tank tops and wife beaters are still allowed.

Planet Fitness has an endless stream of hot cardio bunnies. It can be quite distracting.

Planet Fitness around my area doesn't even allow people to actualy deadlift! understandable being on the second floor but you should be able to wear what you want

This was my first thought too.

I'd much rather see that, than a dude with hairy armpits and his rolls showin. Just sayin. lol.

My gym doesn't go over 100lb dbs, But I make it work.

Same. Just feel like as far as being revealing goes there's nothing really wrong with cutoffs.

If I do switch gyms I'll just slow down my reps on things like DB rows and flat DB press.

No cutoffs? No dropping weights? Sounds like some sort of country club gym policy or something. I thought that most places prefer you don't drop weights, but don't actually enforce it. Gently dropping 125's is not exactly a priority after a tough ass set.

You should wear a cutoff over your tank...

If you get yelled at for wearing a cutoff, promptly take off your cutoff and reveal even more with the tank underneath.. then ask them if that truly makes sense to them. lol.

If my gym told me I couldn't deadlift I would max out with the heaviest weight possible, get to the top of the rep and drop that shit straight to the ground, throw my membership card at them, walk out and find a new gym.
